What would you use? I'd just use my bromons regardless of how good they are in regards of battling and technical usefulness.
>>48186275Finally a chill thread for once. I'm sick of gen wars, coomers and frogposting autistis.I'd do the same, just use my bros.
>>48186275aw yeah me and my boys
>>48186312>MiloticYou do realize how rare Feebas is and how painful the process to get it? I doubt you'd go through it.>>48186354>Naganadel That's literally an alien, the chances of you, of all humans on this planet, to catch it is nonexistent.
>>48186275Honestly, I would probably be a retard like ash and keep a Trubbish that never evolves. Some pokemon simply don't look good after evo. I would probably keep have a team of Tropius, Trubbish, Combusken, Durant, Omanyte and Golett.
Maybe treecko too
Ideally this team of friends
I would probably just have six catmon since cats are pretty easy to care for in real life. Maybe also some cute things like Jigglypuff and Butterfree. Something like Gyarados or Tyranitar would be difficult to contain unless you were a full-time trainer.
my gf took the pic
a couple psychic types, something like slowking or oranguru, they'd be fun to chill with.
>>48186275Lapras, Noctowl, Meganium, Infernape, Gligar, and Zoroark.
Probably start with my shoulder Solosis, then catch Ralts and eventually Indeedee-F becoming a psychic specialist. If full team, I'd have Reuniclus, Gardevoir and Indeedee as well as Hatterene, Dracovish and Xurkitree
>>48186275Full utility team. An abra that can teleport me back home to skip the commute, a charjabug that can charge any device anywhere, a torkoal that could help me stay warm in the cold, an abomasnow to help me stay cool in the heat, a leavanny to help stitch my clothing or make new outfits, and a castform to either clear up bad weather or help with droughts.
I think about this daily, yet I cannot find a pokemon that stands out to me! How do you guys do it?I've struggled with this for 19 years
I probably wouldn't have any Pokemon. I'm not the kind of guy who is good at raising pets.
>>48186421i love this team
>>48186275I'd have two teams for both battling and general lifestyle, still mostly made off of bromonsThe latter would be>Swampert (Favorite mon, makes for a good partner and ace)>Flapple (Comfy shouldermon)>Pelipper (For fly and water travel)>Rotom (Mostly so I can have a Rotom Dex, but also for its portable electrodomestics)>Smeargle (Unique petmon that can also draw with me)>Sableye (it can dig out gems and other sellables for easy money)Battle team would be focused on weather strats, I love pulling those off>Pelipper (Sets up rain and brings more utility with U-Turn and Tailwind)>Swampert (My ace, can mega evolve to become really strong in rain)>Kingdra (General rain sweeper)>Flapple (helps scouting Grass and Electric moves if Swampert's out, can setup with DD)>Scizor (Rain weakens its sole weakness, also pivots in the types the team's weak to, like Dragon and Fairy)>Gengar (Easy revenge killer to finish off the opponent)
>>48186312Your OU as fuck UBER bros.
>>48186444>You do realize how rare Feebas is and how painful the process to get it? I doubt you'd go through it.Reminds me of that one story anon posted in the write thread about a kid trying to buy a Metagross and it basically costing 10x his inheritance.
Grass types are not my favorite in-game, but I would definitely want one as my ace IRL. They offer the most benefits to an everyday person with things like aromatherapy, and plants get their own food from the sun. That said, I do not want anything that has a flower or fruit on it, because I do not want any Beedrills or Combees to be near me all the time. For me, this would be Eldegoss as its head is just a big ball of cotton, though I would probably not enjoy cleaning the mess it makes if it sheds everywhere.Additionally, I would like a Starmie for water travel, and if I'm really lucky, a Golurk for air travel. I wanted to say Drifblim, but it would actually be quite scary to hang onto a balloon as you fly around (not to mention the all the headcanon around that line)
Normal-types always and forever.
i longboard as a hobby so skating with my bro alolachu would be kino
Houndoom, my dad used to breed dobies and I still have one today. Kecleon because I had a chameleon once. And I’ll throw in magnemite cause he’s cool and I like him.
>>48186275Currently with 166 with me5 resting5 on patrol around my house
>>48186444Feebas are rare but not impossible to find. Either search with friends, support a research group, or buy one from breeders since they are popular.
main characters are asleep, post poorly optimized teams
>>481862756 gassy glaceons
>>48186275Meowth with payday and pickup as my shoulder mon Babarel as a Swiss Army knife Ditto cause it’s useful Firetype that can be a lighter Tropius for flight and infinite bananas Alakazam cause he’s smart and can do my taxes or whatever
>>48190861Now that I think about it the fire type would be Magmorter. His eyes brows are a good lighter his butt head is a good ashtray and he’s got that big cannon I can use as a trash can/burn barrel
>>48186275All female except Inteleon
how do you guys decide on a team? Do you pick your favourites or maybe by usefulness (like surf, fly etc?)?
>>48190953I started with Pokemon that left a good impression during playthroughs.
>>48190020Why would you have 16 pokemon and 5 constantly patrolling? Are you an African warlord?
>>48186275A team of my bromons for chilling:>Umbreon>Swampert>Phanpy>Sneasel>Gliscor>YanmegaA team if I wanted to take battling more seriously:>Toxicroak>Reuniclus>Golisopod>Houndoom>Flygon>Galvantula
I like to imagine myself as either a bounty hunter or Pokemon Ranger.

I have:Absol ShayminZoruaLeafeonFlareonMawileDouble of a single type is actually super useful in real life because of differential analysis experience gain.
Some of these are kind of rare but this is what I'd aim for
>>48193772Rare mons are fine, you can catch them irl if you have the determination. On the other hand we have faggots>>48186312>>48192588>>48193321who think UBs, Myhticals and Legendaries will come down from the sky and land straight inside their Pokeballs.
>>48193827Tbf I volunteer at an animal rehabilitation center and occasionally you do come across a rare species that most wouldn't. Some of them even get attached to humans. Could definitely see some people coming across legendaries that way after poaching attempts and whatnot, like the Raikou episodes of Chronicles.
Six eeveelutions. all female
Find ONE flaw. This is the optimal team, the balance of utility and power.
>>48194069I like it
>>48194069Based, but I, personally, would trade taurus for bouffalant.
My absolute faves. Togekiss is my ace and my favourite pokemon, One legendary on a team isn't too unbelievable, as long as it not some uber like dialga or ho-oh but I just had to have latios.
>>48193880That... makes a lot of sense actually huhAlso double based, animal volunteer and remembers Chronicles
>>48194097lol personally I wouldn't
>>48194111>metagross>latios>the legendary arcaninejesus lad
>>48194111epitome of basic bitch taste.(Not a bad thing though, all still nice pokemon anon)
How are you guys able to choose, it is too hard
>>48194212Honestly I used a random generator and thought "yeah I'd keep one of these"
Miltank for milk, happiny for eggs, mawile for taste tests, combee for honey, torchic for heating food up, and cherubi for sweet berries. I'm a server so I could see myself with a food/bakery themed team.
>>48194316This is really good, well thought out and all reasonable pokemon that don't make you look like you think you're an edgy anime protag who can catch multiple legends & pseudos
This is also going to be my team in BDSP.
Mime Jr. ElectivireRotom BonslyPorygon2
Something along these lines personally, just pokemon I like in general.
>Serperior>Typhlosion>Raichu>Haxorus>Talonflame>Lycanroc (Day)Just a couple of bromons that have been some of my favs
>>48186275Just me. My skarmory and arceus, and burning skies until we see lines.
>>48186275Ooh. I love so many Pokémon, it's hard to choose just six!Just by going by 'mons that left an emotional impact on me as I played the games, here's my list:- Marshtomp- Shiny Misdreavus (my very first shiny)- Gyarados- Typhlosion- Chandelure- Ampharos
>>48194371What's wrong with psuedos? Everything except the Metagross line is easy to find and catch. 45 catch rate is the same as starters who are rarer than psuedos. Slow experience group means you have more time to tame them in their harmless forms.
>>48194746you just come across as faggots in what seems to be a thread aimed at daily living with pokemon rather than kaiju wars. I guess if you really wanna live with a tyranitar then whatever but you must understand how it comes across as strange
>>48194864I don't understand what you mean
>>48194746If you went into a house in one of the towns in pokemon you might expect to see guy and his kid with a pidgey and pikachu or a couple of marills. That's more along the lines of what this thread is about. Things you'd live and adventure with from day to day. If there was a salamence and dragonite in there you'd definitely expect the owner to be called coldsteel the hedgehog
>>48194915>>48194864I can kinda get that but then there's also some like Dragonite that's used for mail services throughout the ashime and some literal who brothers recently a Kommo-o. It really doesn't seem that out of place to live with whatever mons you want to.
>>48194914notice how the OP has a charmander and a horsea as some of his picks. Now he could have gone for a charizard and a kingdra if he wanted to but perhaps these pokemon would be a bit more hassle to house and live with and not as 'comfy'>>48194944yeah it's your choice man knock yourself out but you understand my point
>>48186275>All his favorites are from KANTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and JOHTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>48195296Don't forget>Red sprite
>>48186275>ZoruaPet mon, could transform into references for me while drawing.>OnixPocket wall, staircase, digging, rock climbing, great utility and a favorite.>RotomElectricity generator, speech capability. Bonus if forms are included.>BeldumFloating shoulder mon with telekinesis, eventually evolves to a tank/hover car.>DragonairIt can fly, it can swim, it can dive, it can change the weather, another favorite.>ArcanineExtremespeed transportation, can provide warmth and fire during winter.
>>48195296>Kanto Johto bad>the cringe -OOOOOO Gen Z meme
>>48193827Shaymin are pretty common. Imaginative art mind and criticising art mind in one neat package. You be snorting probabilities.
>>48186275I love your taste in mons, OP
>>48194673this is bait
>>48198497Why not Gengar?
>>48199829I like him but I just love Haunters design a tad bit more
I feel like if it was real life I wouldnt be able to properly show affection to a full team of 6
>>48186275Pokemon I'd use regardless of usefulness and battling? I can think of someMuk since it's my all-time favorite Pokemon and just a fun Poison-typeLunatone because I just like things relating to the moon in generalPiplup or Prinplup since I really love penguins. Turtwig is a close second if I want some to hold in my arms or Torterra if I want to relax on its backSmeargle in hopes of helping me with getting better at artFlareon because it's my favorite Kanto Eeveeloution. Combined with the fur on its body and the natural heat makes for a good way to stay warm during the winter or roasting marshmallows.Either Rowlet or Decidueye because I really love owls.Honorable mentions go to to the following:>Ralts or Gardevoir to help calm me down in case I feel overwhelmed or stressed.>Torkoal because I tortoises are cool>Lilligant because it's just really nice-looking
good thread OP, never actually considered what my top 6 Pokemon were

Reading through the thread, while I understand where most of the posters are coming from, in my opinion the most based posters are the ones who said they’re using their bromons. Not for how good they’re in battling nor for how good they’re in utility. That’s how the Pokémon world should be. Sure you can have mons that help you in your work though, not saying it is a bad thing.
>>48193154I'd evolve them, breed them and make different kinds of them. 1st stages, 2nd stages and 3rd stages.
>>48186421>ledian>carnivine>RELICANTHabsolutely based taste
>>48187667i agree with this anon... how
>>48187667>>48202942You don’t find your favorite Pokémon, your favorite Pokémon finds you.
>>48203021Can a favorite ever be supplanted?
>>48203556No unless your feelings towards it have always been fake to begin with. Like for example the fags who say Mawile is their favorite but they only liked it once it got a Mega Evolution and when GameFreak killed Mega Evolution they stopped using it.
I don't care, I just get common but good ones imo
Him and Palpitoad are based. I always thought Seismitoad looked ugly though
This thread is dripping with based taste.
I only need one pokemon
>>48203807>CosmoemAh yes, I’m sure you’re so special irl a legendary Pokémon will just join your party out of all the humans in the world
>irlassuming that we're going with type doesn't matter/power of friendship wins rules
>>48186275I would train my best buddies
>>48204050Klefki seems like a pretty handy mon if you're up for some house robberies
>>48203992This thread isn't about adventure or fulfilling ambitions, it's about working like an npc in a city until you die.
>>48204177So then I am based because irl I live in a small town? cope, city slickers
>>48204235>calling yourself basedyikes
>>48204274>calling yourself yikesretard
>>48203982lmao of all the problems to have, that's a pretty stupid one
>>48204281>calling yourself yikesI didn't though
>>48186275BeedrillMimikyumagikarpGalvantulaSnommagnemiteOnly the best if bros.
>>48204093I think it would just be helpful to not lose keys
>>48204295yeah you didn't but you are cringe though
>>48186275It’s gonna be a combination of bros and mons that help me fly/surf places and have other utilities. Aipom is probably top bro.>>48204335Snoms a good bro
>>48204387>ZygardeAnd how would you find a legendary pokemon irl? Laying on the ground somewhere waiting for a normal human being like you to catch it? Get real.
>>48186275In the ideal world I'd like to be a Pokemon explorer and traveler, so my Pokemon should have maximum practical significance. Battles don't interest me as much, so having one or two strong Pokemon on my team would suffice. So my team would be:SwampertArcanineStaraptorZarudeGengarAmpharosAlong the way I'd befriend a legendary like Suicune or Mewtwo for extra protection.
>>48204484>ZarudeAh yes please explain to me how you met a fucking Mythical Pokemon, you out of all the billions of humans on Earth.
>>48204512Look at this nigga literally wanting to be an npc
>>48204512Only because Zarude is a mythical in game doesn't mean that they're uncommon in the Pokemon world. It can be seen in the new movie that they're living in groups in the middle of jungles. But if it's that much of a problem I'd replace Zarude with Shiftry
>>48204512>>48204436>>48203982>>48194915>>48194864>>48194164>>48193827>>48186444Imagine being such a petty NPC that you're programmed to get mad over people picking what Pokemon they'd like to live and adventure with
>>48204484>>48204547Nice team but will get completely blown away by a competent Dragon type Pokemon or trainer
>>48204599Nah he's making a good effort. Catching a Legendary or UB would require Olympian tier levels of discipline and determination. Doubt most anons would go through that
>>48204620Nah that's not a good effort at all and seeing IP count didn't go up I'm fairly sure you're samefagging a defense
question: would ditto be easily found in the wild or very rare? what are the chances I stumble about one in the world?
>>482046201. If there's a will there's a way.2. (you) are not alone. There are collectives who will help you achieve goals. Anons with a dream can achieve the "impossible". E.G. Hiking through the wilderness like 10 year old Red did to climb Mt. Silver is madness but you can get their with technology.
>>48204652It’s rare but that doesn’t mean you can’t encounter it and catch it. Dude, we’re having anons saying they’d catch legendaries and mythicals, Ditto is nothing compared to that.
>>48204642Nah I see his point>>48204675True, but mythical and legendary Pokemon would typically be late-career mons
>>48195797it's the only funny meme on /vp/. don't blame it on people younger than you, like you always do
New Team:SwampertArcanineStaraptorShiftry / ZarudeGengarAlolan RaichuAlong the way I'd befriend a legendary like Suicune or Mewtwo for extra protection.
Went a little autistic for this one. We'd go on beach trips often :)
>>48204531A majority of the people in the thread want to imagine that they would use legendaries and a full team of pseudos, while only a handful have some well thought out teams. Sounds very NPC-like to use the cookie cutter team of a starter/pseudo/legendary if you ask me.
>>48186275Ignore the text in the pic, These 4 plus probably heracross/golisopod and escavalier. I like bug mons
>>48186275>mfw born in best region
>>48206082>>mfw born in best region II
>>48206082>>48206112I love these two regions equally, they’re both the best.
>>48190926You would be in jail in the pokemon world
This would be my bread and butter. Everything else would be a revolving door based on regions and gyms. >Heracross would be my ace. Moves heavy stuff for me.>Slowking is my walking-mon since he can talk.>Togekiss is just my favorite fly-mon. Plus going through the caring of a togepi would be fun.
I live in a state forest and do conservation work, my bros would help me maintain the environment in all seasons.>>48193772Fellow Torkoal trainer.>>48192588Nu-gen autism but actually based.>>48194069I'm feeling this fucked up beige colorscheme.>>48206421>walking-mon since he can talk.it's the simple things in life.
People are talking about how hard it would be to catch some of the mons they want but we all know you'd be able to buy whatever you want online and have it shipped to you. Between pokeballs for easy shipping and how easy it is to breed pokemon, I think very few outside of legendaries and ditto would be hard to get IRL and they probably wouldn't even be overly expensive. The real question is how much of the pokemon world's op technology do we get?
This one is oddly dark. Imagine the first farfetch'd to carry around the onion. The others thinking it's some kind of genius but it's actually sealing the species' doom because people starting to eat them.
This weird as fuck team.>GardevoirYou know for what to be the only one with a brain and enough responsibility to keep us alive but also to fuck senseless>VenusaurNeed someone to carry shit around>Kommo-oUsed to keep weir ship including an alligator and a capybara back when a cousin got her vet clinic flooded, I think I can care for one, also the dude looks cool.>VenonatWanted one since I was a kid.>InfernapeI'm kinda an /out/ guy, so someone that can make a fire from nothing will come in handy, also was my first fire starter.>QwilfishI have this shitlord in all my teams as a meme since forever, can't let the dude out of this.
>>48186275Unevolved grass types are probably pretty low maintenance and common, pansage evolves into my favourite pokemon, and dratini is there because it's cool.
I remember someone on /vp/ told me that water moves don't actually produce water, and that it's actually just "water energy" if you will. It's the reason that fire type pokemon can still take baths and what not. By that logic, would that mean that fire moves are just "fire energy" and cannot be used to start fires and provide heat?
didnt think about it much just chose my bros>>48200852cacturne is incredibly based and underrated
>>48209661>didnt think about it much just chose my brosThat's how it should be
>>48209481Why would that be the case? A tidal wave or pressure washer can kill you but you don't die when you take a shower. Electric types are shown to produce electricity.
Had an idea I shared with a buddy about a 'hypothetical anime team' where you would have the team you would have if you existed in the anime/pokemon world as a character living in a region (not the main character). To put constraints on it, there were some guidelines:- Pick a set of games in the same region, and only use pokemon in those games (ideally pick your favorite games/region)- Have your favorite pokemon on your team- Have a surfer (doesn't need to know surf unless special case)- Have a flier/teleporter (doesn't need to know the move unless special case- Have a pokemon to aid in catching (A pokemon with super fang + thunder wave, spore + false swipe, etc.)- A shiny- Any gift/event nonlegendary available in those games at a low level to be your starter- Try to use as many favorites as possible- Can have some overlapThis ended up being my team:- Games: FRLG- Event Pikachu (starter + flier)- Mr. Mime (Favorite Pokemon)- Heracross (Favorite Johto mon, 3rd favorite overall)- Mantine (Surfer + second favorite Johto mon)- Arbok (Favorite poison type, one of my favorite Kanto mons)- Shiny Raticate (Catcher, shiny, and like the shiny aesthetically)Thoughts?
>>48210328I think adding some constraints can help guide the imagination, a completely blank canvas is sometimes off-putting. That said, can you evolve the gift pokemon or is it stuck in the stage you received it at?
>>48210451>can you evolve the gift pokemonYes. It's meant to be something you are given (like Charmander for example), but after given it you can do whatever you want with it. I just left my Pikachu unevolved to take advantage of the Light Ball.
>>48210469This was pretty fun to think about:>Games: B2W2 (Not my favorite region but they have more of my favorite mons)>Umbreon (Starter Eevee from Castelia, overall favorite mon, basic bitch taste I know)>Electabuzz (Catcher, favorite Kanto mon/Electric type)>Toxicroak (Favorite Sinnoh mon/Fighting type)>Sigilyph (Flier, favorite Flying type)>Chandelure (Shiny, favorite Ghost type)>Aggron (Surfer, favorite Steel type)Do you remember what your friend's team ending up being?
>>48210687Based team, Umbreon is one of my favorite Johto mons and favorite dark types. (also my favorite eeveelution too). My friend's was:Galar- HA Kanto Slowpoke (gift/starter), Araquanid (favorite/) Shiinotic (catcher), Braviary (flier), Clawitzer (surf/shiny), Krookodile
What would be on the must have list of the IRL team? A team not just for fighting, but general living outdoors and traveling around the world.>flying type big enough to carry you, this is probably the most important>water type to surf, may be optional if you have the flying one>depending on what it does outside of battle, a teleporter may be even more of a must have>big and sturdy one to shield you if things get ugly>any pokemon with a fire attack to light a fire>any pokemon who can put others to sleep in case you find something too strong to fight and need to run away>general utility to smash rock, cut trees etc>healer>a psychic type, IRL things like reading minds and moving objects is just too OP to pass>if you want to cach others, a pokemon with false swipe maybe?
>>48210725I'd say a pokemon for travel, for utility, and for catching would be enough.
>>48186275IRL? More like isekaied, but i guess would work in irl too.The team would depend on how well i'm doing of course, it is in the order i would get them from left to right. So first i will get my fav pokemon Absol or die trying, next if i can afford having another pokemon i will try to get Smeargle and so on. Few notes about the team:I will get alolan marowak as cubone, if it can't evolve and stays cubone i'm okay with it.I will get primarina as popplio, if it can't fully evolve and stays popplio or brionne i'm okay with it.I will only get haunter in it's evolved form and will never evolve it further.>>48190953I started with my favorite pokemon and went from there. I accounted for many factors, like appearance, combat skills, out of combat skills, how convenient it is to take care of, etc.So in my team i started with Absol, which is quadrupedal, and it thought that next i'd like to have a bipedal, Smeargle have great combat utility in Sketch, and out of combat it is very nice for me that it has painting tail and can learn hundreds of marks, it can be used for communication or performances, or maybe you could even try to teach it to actually draw. Then since both Absol and Smeargle were weak to fighting i thought it'd be nice to have someone with immunity, i picked alolan marowak for the fact that in addition to it's immunities it can learn a fire move, which is useful, and also it can dance, which i thought was pretty fucking cool. Next i thought i needed something that can dive and maybe surf, but mostly dive, so it can pick/catch things on the bottom of the ocean or lakes etc, but at the same time i needed it to be comfortable on land as i didn't plan to spend all my time near water, primarina fit nicely into that niche, and it also can sing, which with marowak's dancing would make a great combination. Etc. (There were more to it, but i'm at character limit for the post already.)
>>48210708You have some good picks yourself, Heracross and Arbok in particular, and who wouldn't want a Pikachu that can fucking fly? As for your friend, anyone who adds Clawitzer and Krookodile to their team is based in my book.
>>48210725Flying kind of kills it for me both in games and fantasies. It's like missing all the adventures.Also, most sleep moves have shit chance to work, so not sure you want to risk it with "something too strong to fight", i'd rather have a smoke ball, ninja style
>>48208601>All shiny How long did that take
>>48209661>all those shouldermonsCute. Clauncher would be mine.
>>48210725A beast of burden/mount to carry you and your stuff around, and remove the false swiper, if it is a realistic arpoach you can just tell a pokemon to take it easier.>>48210823So much this, if you are thinking about real life adventure with pokemon you need to pretend that even the strongest flying type can't carry you for more than a few meters. The adventure dies if you can just jump on your Dragonite and fly across the world to your destination in a few hours.
>>48210823>>48210904Those points about flying are all really good, although I think a surfer would still be helpful since it wouldn't exactly kill the adventure, more or less it would just allow you to access more locations
Real life is gay as shit. In this scenario I would assume pokemon is a common thing in the real world to make it fair for everyone else. Which sucks, but if I was the only one with supernatural creatures then the Government would come after me.

Everyone says they're the animal the most represent me and I like Torkoal a lot. >QuagsireLoved this guy ever since I saw him. He's so relaxed and I know he would get along well with the rest of my team. >NoctowlAlways been fascinated by owls and my parents love owls too. Our house is full of owl artwork, so I could see them getting me a Hoothoot. >TyrantrumI was a major league dinosaur autist and wound up becoming a geologist. I was also obsessed with dragons and probably would have begged my parents for a Tyrunt. >ExcadrillI loved moles too and always protested when my dad wanted to exterminate the moles infesting our lawn. It works well with my current profession, too.
>>48210904>>48210823>>48210725>>48210904So, how about this:>TyrantrumVery big, and can carry me and my stuff arround, also works as the meat shield since it has high defense and it is a rock type (I think that the anime like to pretend that rock is a good defensive type, so I guess it would work like that IRL)>LaprasBasicaly water Tryantrun, I wanted something that looked like it could be useful outside of water too, but they are too small, pluss with a Lapras I kind of have a dinosaur themed mount>EspeonWish, protect, substitute, batom pass, etc, it is a team healer, also a psychic type and I'm a sucker for eevolutions>SmeargleUltimate utility pokemon, make it learn cut, rock smash, dig, strengh or whatever you think you need>TalonflameFire is usefull flying is useful, but it is not big enough to carry me and ruin the fun>TyranitarI need a fighter too, I guess
>>4821084015 minutes and an Action replay
>>48186275>All first stages>Some even babymonsCan you explain why? Why shitmons when you can evolve them all? And babymons? Are you a pedo? And looking at other posters here some have NFEs too. Why the fuck are you using shitmons?
>>48186275>Shiny Lycanroc [Dusk]First shiny I hunted. I've always been that cringe wolf guy. I imagine he would have a strong rivalry with Arcanine wanting top spot. Would love the attention he gets being so rare.>MachampWould help with manual labor and just being a helping hand. Seems like a healthy Pokebro to have and very versatile to boot. >ArcanineMy OG favorite pokemon, would make great transportation and provide warmth in colder months.>TogekissA good luck charming that bestows blessings and happiness. Can also act as a scout and delivery service. >NidokingNidoking carried me for so many playthroughs I cannot imagine not having one IRL. He'd be very antisocial and basking in the shade on hot days.>DittoWe'd all just fuck it
>>48211022Based animal bro. You actually sound like a great person to hang with.
>>48186668Is there a site or a template to make this?
>>48212093>Are you a pedo?Not him, but want to reveal to you that not everyone fucks their pokemon.
>>48186649based, keep dabbing on power fantasy fags
>>48213987>NOOOO YOU CAN'T USE ANYTHING WITH A BST HIGHER THAN 400!Also, I'd love to hear the explanation of how a Relicanth, one of the rarest Pokemon in Hoenn, is more 'logical' than say a Gyarados, or how having a Fossil mon is more likely than a pseudo.
>>48214890This. I can get when people frown upon including mythicals or legendaries, but just strong pokemon and pseudos why not.Although it probably would be very difficult to fully evolve a pseudo, but that's a separate question, pseudos are not the only ones that have ridiculous evolving requirements.
>>48206337Biker in leather carrying a pink kitty. Nice!>>48207041Based torkoal, could be a chore to provide coal to it in a forst though.>>48207301Gardevoir sound a bit dangerous, especially for *THAT*, if you take into account it's usually obsessive personality and psychic powers.And hell yeah infernape, doesn't even need to make fire, just roast stuff on it's mane.>>48209406Mmm... tasty male skiddo milkdrinkBut jokes aside it's a good plan, easy to take care of them>>48210328It's really hard to take your team seriously with pikachu as a flier. I mean those are your fantasies, but to meme-like in my opinion.>>48210857Nice big pokemon. Good for hugging.And clauncher is great choice as shoulder mon.>>48212198>ArcanineExtra large doggo, i see what you did there>dittoOh monsieur
>>48212748No I just used photoshop. Let me know if you want me to make you one. Just post your team list, trainer sprite, and preferred location.
>>48215114Is there a story to your Zangoose having a captain's hat?
>>48215137Autistic head canon is that:I took Zangoose out for a historic boat tour near Lilycove at one point and she had an absolute blast. Had to stop at the museum gift shop to pick up a captain's hat. She won't take it off now.
>>48186275A team full of loli pokemon, it would be pretty fun to watch them interact with each other.
>>48215262That's adorable, which is a side of Zangoose that sadly doesn't get explored too often given its 'edgy' design.
>>48200708The variety is great in your team.>>48200857That's a one nutty farm.>>48203709I wouldn't call starters common, but team looks nice.>>48204971>Along the way I'd befriend a legendaryGood luck with that, try not to die.>>48205351Very interesting team. Clamperl should be more popular.>>48205821Made me realize that Torterra does kinda look like a bug>>48215435You can watch them, but don't film them, it might be illegal.
>>48215013>It's really hard to take your team seriously with pikachu as a flier.pic related> to meme-like in my opinion.It is desu.The team was made like that though to be used in game with no type overlap, irl you probably wouldn't use your pokemon to fly. I don't think Ash ever actually has (at least not for extended periods of time). Plus, like other anons said, it does ruin the adventure aspect a bit. irl, Pikachu would probably be able to fly but I wouldn't fly on it.
>>48187719Pokemon are intelligent creatures, you won't do anything more than feeding and grooming them.
I'd have my trio of snouted brown pokemon.Also I like muay thai so I'd have a himtonlee for battling people and training/sparring with
please don't hate on my shitmons
>>48218682>MunchlaxI'll forgive you
>>48186668This is nice. I made one of my own in paint.Hitmonlee and Mankey shadowboxing while the snoutboys enjoy the national park.i'm this anon btw >>48218622
>>48219413I like when anons add some context to these pictures. Also Hitmonlee's lack of a nose is humorous when considering the rest of the team.
I chose ones I liked that I could also reasonably get my hands on. I think it would not be easy for me to get, say, Cofagrigus or Aegislash, unless I worked in a museum or something. Which I don't.>>48193567Vanilluxe good, as long as you don't just intend to eat him though...>>48207041Forretress and Snorunt incredibly based
>>48219413This is really cool bro. Great choice in backdrop. So much SOULt. >>48186668
I'd use something like pic related, Budew/Roserade was my first shiny so I'd definitely have that irl if I could, and I think I could acquire most everything in my party where I live except maybe Empoleon, though I might have to get lucky with a Duskull/Dusclops as well. The Ninjask/Shedinja would come from the same Nincada so I have some bros/team synergy in the party.
>>48219920Thanks. Never thought of doing something like that before but they work really well. I thought the bell tower one looked a bit like a dojo so I also made this one.
No rhyme or reason, just Pokefrens I like a lot. Plus I could ride Rapidash or Dragonair maybe so they double as transportation tooTotodile is my main bro though, I love that little dude so much
>>48210328>Travelling on a flying pikachuIf you're giving yourself restraints, how have you allowed that, it's clearly not meant to be canon>mr mime favourite pokemonClearly you touch kids

>>48221210>If you're giving yourself restraints, how have you allowed that, it's clearly not meant to be canonIt was more of an in-game thing, in the anime Ash doesn't really fly on his pokemonMr. Mime is also my favorite because I first got into Pokemon when my aunt's boyfriend gave me all of his old cards and the card sitting on top, which was the only foil card, was pic related. It's stuck with me ever since.
>>48221949>ZygardePray tell how you of all people could find and catch a legendary Pokemon
>>48224473Not him but since it's Zygarde's 10% form shouldn't it be feasible to catch? Since there are tons of Zygarde cells out there and that form doesn't require most of them, he should be able to find one somewhere, right?

>>48225484Says who?>evolves at Level 18
I usually use a Crobat, a Feraligatr and/or a Galvantula.Sometimes I do typed or themed runs around one of them, like when I did a full poison run.What I CANNOT use is pokemon that aren't the same colour of their main element. I would never use a Kingler or a Crawdaunt.
>>48225923How about for a challenge sometime use a team entirely of miscolored Pokemon?
>>48225923>What I CANNOT use is pokemon that aren't the same colour of their main element./vp/ is fascinating
>>48225959I've done a bird-only run of Emerald with Blaziken, Ludicolo, Altaria, Skarmory, Xatu and another one I can't remember, probably Pigeot or some basic bird (I don't think the ROM hack had more than the first three gens, but it was one of those where you can catch all of them) and I was forced to break this rule.I'm okay with it if there's a bigger team.I have thought about doing a colour run, though.>>48225965I use cheats to make my chandelures shiny because of this
>>48186275this is my fave thread on vp right nowyou guys are ok
>>48210328Tbh, after thinking about it, flying Pikachu feels goofy. Think I'm gonna swap in surfing Pikachu instead, since it feels more feasible to ride on a surfboard with a Pikachu than to fly with one (especially if I know how to surf as a character). Not sure what to replace Mantine with as a flier though. Thinking Articuno since its my favorite legendary, and could tie in to me being a pokemon breeder (Starter surfing Pikachu acquired as a Pichu egg, made me want to be a breeder, resulting in eventually going to Seafoam islands to study Articuno and see if it nests there/breeds, only to run into it and capture it).>inb4 legendCharacters in the anime have had legends lmao

>NinetalesI want something warm, furry, and vaguely matronly to cuddle that can double as a psychic in a pinch.>RaichuI'm a dweeb who would want a Pikachu as a shouldermon but end up evolving him anyway because Raichu is just too cool.>CorviknightCrows are cool, plus having a big, very intelligent flying mon sounds means no car and no car payment. Also, I like the idea of having a tanky, powerful bigmon kind of like Ash's Charizard.>ChatotA shouldermon with no evolution temptation. I'd teach him to swear like a sailor and to be hilariously competent in a battle just because the idea of a little bird stomping something 10 times his size is funny.>CacturnI want a plantmon, but not one that needs a ton of special care requirements, so a cactus fits perfect.>Porygon2There to round out the team, and also I do nerd work on the regular, so a pokemon that can interface with computers sounds like a godsend.

2 Frog Walking Mons, a Trashbag, and a Portable Charger. Strangely high amount of Pokemon for a non trainer, always hopes to some day go pro, beats the local gym after months of training but can never find the time to go much further from home.

Just (some) of my faves.
>>48186275Took me a while to decide. I choose Altaria for my Fly-mon and Lycanrock to ride. Rest are just fun to hang out with
>>48242636Cute and based for Nosepass
>>48186275Caring for 6 would be exhausting. I’ll just get me a Meowth or two since cats don’t require much effort to raise
my irl team is much more based on how anime canon would be and how battles and personality of pokemon would be like.
A team of friends
>>48186275Shit man, I don't know. Probably some eeveelution. If they're anything like real animals I feel like they'd be too high maintenance. Plus I'd feel bad for keeping them in their balls all day. They're much more intelligent than normal animals though, so I'd probably have to give them something to do. Especially if they're humanoids like Gallade.And what do I do about water mons? Do I need a pool or a nearby body of water? I don't like real life, you guys...
>>48245113>Do I need a pool or a nearby body of water?Depends on the mon, some water types should be fine on land, but for stuff like fish pokemon you'll need water obviously.About balls, don't keep them in there, just let them out. >Especially if they're humanoids like Gallade.What's that has to do with anything? Quadrupedals are not less intelligent, so why give them less attention?It's honestly sounds worse than it would be, some people have families with 5+ kids and are happy.
>>48186275Pokemon helpful to daily life. For starters Jigglypuff would be a great sleep aid.
>>48204282isn't that the point of the thread though?to make REALISTIC teams?
>>48245184Bipedal ones can help with cleaning too
>>48245391I hope that's a male Braixen.
You'd have to be one of those tryhards who takes on leagues to think you need more than 3 partners.
>>48245517It's not about what you need, it's about what you want vs what you can afford to do.For the most part no one here really NEEDS pokemon.
>my choice and the order of acquisition legendries and similarly rare pokemon are obviously not an option.assuming we live in a world like ours, then we wouldn't get a gifted starter pokemon just for fun, so starters are not an option either.because of where i live, tropical, deep-sea, space, ultra beast, etc. aren't an option.most pokemon that need special stuff for evolution be used either, because the stones or whatever would be VERY expensive.>LeavannySewaddle would be one of the easiest to catch pokemon ever.literally just walk around the forrest until you find one in the forrest, bait it with food and catch it (you can't just kick it's ass, because it needs high friendship for the final evolution)>LopunnyBuneary would also be easy to find.and, while i could probably kick it's face in and catch it, i now have a Swadloon and can play by the rules to catch it instead.>Mudsdalecatching a wild Mudbray is probably impossible but buying one from a farmer? pretty easy and probably pretty affordable too. i have probably won a few trainer fights by now so, while cash isn't abundant, it would also not be such a massive obstacle anymore.evolving Mudbray would also allow me to travel further.>Gastrodonwith a Mudsdale on my side, traveling to the coast would be simple. (taking a car or a bike would be too, but that would defeat the purpose...)catching a Shellos is just walking up and down the beach until i find one.>NoctowlHoothoot is literally just an owl. Since i'm traveling now, it wouldn't be hard to find one at night.evolve it, and now i have all-terrain vehicles. and a decent team to make money.>Mega Gardevoirthis is where i spend my grind on. finding a Ralts is just a google-search and a long ass journey away.evolving it to gardevoir would take some time, but not nearly as much as a Dragonite would take.mega-evolving it only costs money and """spending time with her"""
After going through the thread and thinking about it, anons made some good points on what good inclusions/exclusions would be. Still going with someone born in Kanto (who eventually moves to the Sevii islands), but going to change my team to this:- Mr. MimeStill my favorite pokemon, and would be my bro mon.- NinetalesMy favorite fire type, and useful team support with confuse ray and will-o-wisp. A fire type would also be nice to have to light fires or keep warm if traveling in the cold.- MantineOne of my favorite pokemon, and would be used for crossing bodies of water. Can also serve as the special wall for the team.- SteelixAnother favorite, and I could travel on it. It could also serve as a bulky mon to protect me, and would be the physical wall for the team.- HeracrossOne of my favorite pokemon, and could serve as the strong man, lifting or destroying certain obstacles out of the way.- DunsparceAlways liked this guy as the underdog, and could serve as my shouldermon (yes it's a bit bigger, but I workout regularly, am in decent shape, and am somewhat large myself).No flier because it would ruin the sense of adventure, and wouldn't be needed.
>>48245747>so starters are not an option eitherThey are more common in some regions, than the others. Although more difficult to breed, so probably more rare/expensive ones, but still obtainable. Males at least. I expect females to be a big luck to catch and very expensive to buy.
>>48245945Check its weight in bulbapedia
>>48246293>30 lbsI already checked it, I'd be fine. Pikachu is 13 lbs and a 10 year old boy is capable of running with it on his shoulder no sweat. I am a man in good shape who works out lol.
>>48221949did you make the dog fuck the cat?what is going on in your pic dude?
>SeismitoadHe's my favorite Pokémon and can pass off as a starter. We'd be the best of friends and he can help with crossing rivers>Ariados My favorite early route Mon, she'd be my Caterpie, minus releasing her. She'd would be on the lookout at night.>LeafeonA reliable Eeveelution and could help dig and she seems like she'd have powerful kicks. Wish this Mon had more fighting moves, at least Double Kick.>Probopass A reliable compass and he seems funny. Never got the hate for this dude. I wish he was Electric/Rock but whatever.>MeowsticCool, chill and seems like a tsundere. She's also really cute and has a great move pool.>NoivernA rad flying Mon that also has a great move pool. Strongest in my team and would be and incredible bro.
